I am a graduate of Bryn Mawr College of Social Work and Social Research Masters Program. Since then, I have worked in adoption, with hospice, and with a variety of people with different problems in my private practice of 25 years.
Some of these include relationship counseling, individual counseling, obesity, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, chronic illness, alcoholism, drug addiction, women’s issues, and geriatrics. Working with people to be the best that they strive to be is always the only goal that I have. I will help you discover what is right with you. We will use your strengths to make you the best you can be. It only takes a serious commitment from you.
Sometimes we may have to dig a little deeper, and that is OK, too. There is no “cookie-cutter” counseling! However, I will always treat you with the respect that you deserve, and encourage you to use the intelligence that you have within you to resolve your issues.
It takes courage to change; it often takes a person in emotional pain as well. Whatever has brought you here, I salute you for taking that first step! I look forward to helping you on your journey as you find out how small changes in behavior and thinking can lead to big changes in your life, one step at a time.
Let’s get started on your being the best that you want to be! You are incredibly and beautifully complicated, and you will be impressed with all of your complexities that we will discover together as you begin your journey of self-discovery!

I have only been working with Jan for a very short time so its maybe too soon to send a review but so far I feel very comfortable with Jan and she has been insightful and made some interesting points. However I am just at the beginning.
Jan is kind, understanding & resourceful. I feel like she listens & offers solutions in a way that’s neither pushy, nor demeaning. I have recommended Better Help to several of my family members & friends. My only hope is that they’ll be in as good of hands as I am with Jan.
